According to Chris Burch, both the fashion industry and technological industry have experienced a number of changes over the years. The only thing that remains constant is the way both industries grow together in a fascinating journey. Looking at the past and the situation currently only gives a better indication of what the future holds. Chris compares the journey music experience has traveled from the 70s when the boombox was the big thing up until the walkman came into play in the 90s and a decade later the iPod changed the game completely. He concludes that technology develops with the popularity of what people consider to be fashionable.
Synthesis of Fashion and Technology
At the moment, the synthesis of fashion and technology is taking place and fashion designers are coming up with design creations that deliver by using technology. Relying on technology has greatly improved the standards in functionality and innovation. Anouk Wipprecht, a fashion designer from Netherlands has married fashion with technology. She views the latter as a playground and a great avenue for experiments. Delving deeper into technology brings about endless opportunities to the world of fashion according to Wipprecht. She is well known for having come up with futuristic designs like the Daredroid, a dress that makes drinks and Pseudomorphs, which is a dress that paints itself. Her work is just an example of what to expect in future when more fashion designers adopt the use of technology. The future of technology will consequently lead the future of fashion when these two industries work together.
